HOW DO YOU DEFINE QUEER?

"My definition of queer would be inclusivity of people from all walks of life but specifically
sexual orientation and gender identity. "

IS BALTIMORE A QUEER CITY?

"When I was coming of age in my twenties, coming out of college, I lived in Baltimore for a while. At that time for me it was a very queer city. I worked at HRC and I was doing stuff with the Lesbian Avengers and it was just, for me a, very vibrant place to be queer. We would go to the Hippo and hang out. [Then] I was living in D.C. and I would come up to Baltimore and it always felt to me like people were just a little more chill about it. This was back, late 90's early 2000's, but it felt like it was a bit less of a big deal here."

RELATE A 'QUEER BALTIMORE' TO THEATRE FOR US.

"Theatre is important for everyone because it's a means of expression and a means of self discovery. So it's important to Baltimore because Baltimore has a lot to say, there's a lot going on here right now. Especially, that needs to be expressed. I feel that theatre can really help with that. For the queer community, there's a lot of stories that have not been told yet. There's the big ones but there's still a lot of stories that need to be told - [the] little ones and theatre can help with that as well."
